(Part 3 of the Parent Naviance Exploration Series)
Naviance’s SuperMatch makes it easy for students to explore thousands of potential colleges from their Naviance Student Dashboard. Students can use this tool to discover colleges that are a great fit, both in terms of what the student is looking for in a college experience and a good match for their academic profile.
The program’s intuitive search function and onboarding cues ensure students can get started quickly. Over 50 tool tips are now included throughout SuperMatch to help students understand common – and not so common- college terminology. They can choose to filter their search based on 90 data points that make it easier to find the best-fit educational institutions. Search Filters include retention rate, financial information, student profiles, application deadlines, minors offered, online learning opportunities, average class sizes, tuition costs, support offered for learning disabilities, and many more.
Based on their profile and search criteria, students can see an in-depth, side-by-side comparison of higher education institutions and easily pinpoint colleges that are the best fit for them. Academic Match provides students with insight into whether colleges are a safety, match, or reach school based on their GPA, SAT and ACT scores. Results show students exactly how their Fit Score was determined and how they compare to the institutional averages.
Students can easily export their top matches to their “Colleges I am Interested In” file. The SuperMatch platform can be a valuable tool a student can utilize as their expectations for their ideal college evolves during their high school career.
